Programme:

5:00pm Short Film – Life After Growth, 2010 (25 mins)
Directed, written, shot and edited by Leah Temper & Claudia Medina

Life After Growth documents the rise of a new movement calling not for more economic growth, but LESS. The degrowth movement, or “mouvement por le decroissance”, argues that through a voluntary reduction of the economy we can work less, consume less and live better, fuller lives.

5:35 Main Feature – Economics of Happiness, (67 mins)
Dir. Helena Norberg-Hodge, Steven Gorelick, John Page, 2010, US/UK,
Screened in association with The International Society for Ecology and Culture (ISEC)

A new feature length documentary that argues that the policies being implemented to deal with today’s economic turmoil will only temporarily shore up a global system that is fundamentally unstable and incapable of meeting the needs of people and the planet.
